Excellent

Kai G. "Kai G.", Amazon

  • Summary: It worked literally straight out of the box. Plugged one unit to the ADSL Router/Hub down in the basement office (which does transmit wirelessly, but not strongly enough to penetrate the basement ceiling reliably), and the other unit upstairs, and there it was - instant wireless networking...

Excellent hardware, but set-up quality is lacking

  • Summary: I am very pleased with my Netgear products. I have a MR814 wireless router, which is installed in my 1860 sq ft condo's lower level between two big "I" beams. These beams suck the power (and range) out of the signal so that there are some places on the main floor that I can't receive a strong enough...

  • Summary: Update 12/13/2007: This just up and died a few months ago. All the right lights were lit and it said it was connected but none of my laptops could recognize it any longer. For a while before that it would just drop the connection.

  • Summary: We live in an older house with those wonderful lath and plaster walls that are great on soundproofing and even better at stifling wireless signals. Our computer and router are upstairs and there was no appreciable signal downstairs.

Great product but not as easy to install as Netgear would have us believe

  • Summary: The range extender works perfectly. The router - -a Linksys - - -is located on the second floor of the house. My room is located at the 1st floor but at a far corner. However, with the range extender, my signal is EXCELLENT! Previously, I only got a LOW or VERY LOW SIGNAL.

A good solution to wireless range extension

nycebo, Amazon
22 March 2005
  • Summary: I use a wireless router in the house with great success. However, the range is pretty weak or my house is too big, and I am pretty sure it's not the latter. As a result, I researched a variety of solutions, none of which seemed too appealing to implement (bridges, wireless range extenders, new RF...

Das System überzeugt bei richtiger Einstellung

  • Excerpt: Ich arbeite als freier Netzwerkadmin, dabei hab ich ich schon einige Systeme gesehen und konfiguriert. Zu dem WGXB 102 Kit. Teure Kabel legen? Warum wenn man die Stromkabel der Umgebung nutzen kann! Das ist WGXB 102.
  • Pros: Bereichorientierter Accespoint, klein, portable
  • Cons: schwierig einzustellen, schlechte Anleitung

DATENSTROM....

  • Excerpt: Hallo erstmal! --Aussehen und Bauweise-- Die beiden Geräte sehen recht nett aus, die Grösse finde ich aber nicht ansprechend. Der Wireless Access Point steckt aufgrund seiner Dimension und Bauweise nicht optimal in der Steckdose, für meine Begriffe ist er zu wacklig.
  • Pros: Kabellose Erweiterung eines Netzwerkes, Preis
  • Cons: Größe, "Einfache Installation", Haltbarkeit
